Done with irrigation and farm road maintenance

Countdown begins for Gozhi gewog as it rushes to complete its developmental activities to meet the 31 December deadline.

The work started about three months ago.

In his earlier interview Gup Prem Kumar Dahal said the work should finish as soon as possible since the 2013 election might delay the gewog activities.

A feasibility survey to construct irrigation channel was completed and construction works have already started. Even the tendering process for the 800m farm road is also done.

“The Farm road was constructed by public but the condition was bad and public couldn’t afford to maintain it again so Government is funding them,” he said.

Around Nu 0.5mn is allotted for the road construction and the farm road is mainly for middle Gozhi which has more than 45 households.

For 365 households there will be extra three irrigation channels to cultivate winter crops and oranges. The irrigation channels are funded by Decentralization Rural Developmental projects (DRDP). The budget allotted for the irrigation channel is around 1.5mn.
